Instagram Reel Tip # 1: pile your Instagram reels in the pile
My first time-saving tip is to batch capture your Instagram reels. In simple terms, batch creation means creating similar content all at once. In fact, my weekly YouTube videos are created in batches. I actually film 8-12 YouTube videos over a day or two so I have content that will last for months.
Batching your Instagram Reels not only gives you the content you need when you need it (instead of creating something right away), it also lets you post much faster with just a few clicks.
By creating all of your content in one batch, you are also making sure that you have the right mindset. Understandably, stepping in front of a camera can make a lot of people nervous. By filming it all at once, you can get excited and make sure you have the right attitude.
Finally, when you batch create your Instagram roles, you can add video and text at the same time. Go ahead and jump into the Instagram app, add your text and save it on your phone. If you do this repeatedly you will find that you will get ahead faster at creating your content.
Instagram Reel Tip # 2: Make a note of the timestamp of your selected music
Next, let’s talk about how you can effectively add music to your Instagram reel. Audio is an important part of creating an engaging Instagram reel. For this reason, the selection of the music or the voiceover for your reel should never be made afterwards.
This is why I recommend saving music that you like when it appears on your Instagram feed. Just tap the name of the audio track and tap the ribbon to save. Now you can quickly add that music the next time you create an Instagram reel.
However, to save even more time, I recommend making a note of the timestamp of the audio that you want to share. Keep a document or spreadsheet to organize the Instagram Reels you’ve created. Then add the note of the timestamp of the music you want to use. When you’re ready to post, you’ll have all the information you need to know about adding and sharing music.
Instagram Reel Tip # 3: Download a backup reel to your cellphone camera roll
Third, I recommend downloading a backup of Instagram Reel to your phone’s camera roll. Saving your Instagram reels as a draft is a good option, but not 100% perfect.
This is why I suggest downloading your Instagram reel to your phone’s camera roll as well. Then you always have a backup of your work.
To download your backup Instagram Reel, all you have to do is tap the top left arrow that is pointing down (which has a line below it). When you’re ready to upload your Instagram Reel, all you have to do is drag it out of your camera roll and add the audio.

Instagram Reel Tip # 4: How to Create an Instagram Reel to Save for Later
Next, let’s take a closer look at how to create an Instagram reel to save for later. First, open the Instagram Reels tab and flip the camera over to record.
Then set the duration of the Instagram role. You can choose between 15, 30 or 60 seconds. I suggest filming for 30 seconds. Remember, once you’ve launched your Instagram Reel, there is no way you can go back and renew it. However, you can post a reel that is less than 30 seconds long, even if you’ve chosen that longer length.
If you are nervous about filming, I recommend setting a timer to prepare for the shot. A timer can also come in handy when you want to film something hands-free.
Now you can tap the preview button to take a look at your Instagram. If you want to record from scratch, do not tap the “X”. Instead, tap the back button in the lower left corner and select the trash can.
To crop the end of your Instagram reel, just tap the scissors icon. Tap “Trim,” then tap “Done” to finalize your Instagram Reel. Now you can add your text.

Instagram Reel Tip # 5: Remember, you don’t have to be perfect on video
Finally, here’s my top Instagram Reels pro tip. Remember, you don’t have to be perfect to be on video. It’s totally understandable to be nervous, after all, we all feel ridiculous at times when we face ourselves out there.
But the most important thing you can do for your brand is so that people can connect with you. You want them to know the real person behind your brand.
